Anjuman Wazifa traces it’s history to over 100 years ago where in 1912, Haji Jalaluddin Haider and Nawab Mohsen Mirza started the original organization in India to serve needy and deserving students in their local community to be able to pursue education. At the time when Sir Syed’s Muslim University at Aligarh was gaining popularity in India, Anjuman’s initiative gave a boost to those bright students who did not have the means to continue higher education. This commitment to help deserving students gained momentum as more and more people joined the Anjuman and helped with finances and other available resources — above all, with selfless propagation of Anjuman’s cause.
Continuing the Tradition
Nearly 8 decades later, the Anjuman Wazifa North America was formed in 1990 to continue the advancement of the community through investment in the academic development of its youth. Today the Anjuman continues the glorious tradition of passing on the standard of knowledge to future generations, while demonstrating to them with their efforts how to preserve, develop and transmit knowledge to the generations to come.[/column] [/columns][/vc_column][/vc_row]
As an international student in the U.S., financial support is one of the many challenges students like myself will encounter as they pursue their career goals. I am truly appreciative of all the support and assistance Anjuman has given me and I encourage you to continue to support them for all their outstanding effort in the professional and personal development of our youth.

I am eternally grateful for the support from Anjuman Wazifa. I was able to borrow over $58,000 interest free while I pursued my bachelors and graduate degrees. This is an incredible service to the community and I encourage all to support it.

Anjuman Wazifa was a great financial help to me and my family throughout my undergraduate education. With the funds I was able to borrow from Anjuman, I could focus on my studies without having to work part-time.
